I am a public affairs PhD candidate at the Harry S Truman School of Government & Public Affairs at the University of Missouri.
My research interests include land use policy, housing policy, and state preemption of local government. Linking these, my dissertation focuses on state preemption of accessory dwelling units (ADUs). I compare what policies have been enacted in different states and examine the interactions between state and local governments in California.
Prior to attending Mizzou, I worked as both a financial policy analyst and a data analyst. I have a master’s degree in economics from the University of Colorado, Denver and a bachelor’s degree from a unique Canadian university, which no longer exists.
In my free time, I walk, and throw frisbees into lakes.
